I implement worksite wellness/fitness programs for large employer groups.  I strive to improve the health and well-being of the employee population in order to increase work productivity, decrease their amount of sick days and lower their overall health care costs.

I have been competing with Fitness America for the past 4 years.  In that time I placed in the Top 10 at FAP Vegas 2008 and 6th Place at FAP Miami 2009.  I placed 4th in the Fitness America NY Show 2010.   In May 2011, I place 1st in the Kumite Classic, FAP.

The first year I competed, I placed 1st in Bikini America short-class & 4th in Fitness at the Kumite Classic in Pittsburgh, 2007.  I had such a great time that it has inspired me to continue to compete…primarily because I enjoy performing and being on stage; I also love meeting new people from across the U.S. and across the world at these events.  We all have common interests and passions.  Competing in Fitness allows me to fulfill my desire to entertain and enables me to strive to be in the best shape I can be.

I have earned many health and fitness certifications with the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA).  I have a diverse background in teaching group fitness classes, such as BodyPump, BodyCombat, Spinning, Zumba and YogaFit.  Fitness is truly my passion and I have made it a successful career!

Lifetime Ambitions  I am working towards becoming a successful fitness-model and am in the process of opening my own Yoga and Dance studio in 2012.

I feel that every time I step on stage, I am a winner.  I believe in myself and strive to be a true inspiration to all women who dream big and desire to achieve more.  I feel that my hard-work and determination have brought me so far; however, I have not done this alone.  Thanks to family, friends, my husband and personal trainer, I am here today.  I truly believe I am only competing against myself.  The moment I step on stage, I know I have won – I have done my best, and really, that’s all that matters to me!

One of my main goals in life is to help empower women of all shapes, sizes, races and ages to build their confidence and reach their fitness and business goals.  Above all else, I wish to maintain healthy relationships with my supportive husband and my loving family and friends.  I recently got married on 11.11.11. in theCaribbean!
